This is a platform that we use in school to take pictures and video observations of the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We are able to share these with you via the Evidence Me app. During the current situation it has been a valuable tool, which has allowed us to share information and online forms too.
Each week we will be sending you fun practical home learning activities which we would like your child to complete as part of their homework. Please feel free to send any photos, videos and comments back to us. This helps to develop a full picture of your child’s interests and learning. In class, we are using Evidence Me to make observations of key steps in their learning. We will be sending home observations for you to view and share with your child.
How Parent Share Works
- Once the school has linked your email address to your child’s account, you will be sent a Parent Share invitation to activate your account.
